The 2012 Empty Bowl will take place on Oct. 10. Local potters, professional and amateur, donate bowls they have made to the fundraiser for Tri-Lakes Cares. Attendees receive a dinner of soup, served in a disposable bowl, bread and dessert and get to pick from one of the many bowls to take home. The empty bowl represents those in the community that go without a meal.
Corey McNellis was a two-time Colorado wrestling champion at Ponderosa. His older brother Chris was the Mustangs' first-ever state champ.
